A pub in a rural area of Preston has reopened following a major refit.Advertisement
The Grapes Inn in Goosnargh dates back to the 18th century as a coaching inn but has now been brought up to the 21st century.
Following a £71,000 investment from parent firm Admiral Taverns it has a new interior and exterior.
Work has also gone into a new beer terrace in time for the heatwave we’re experiencing.

The pub forms part of the Inglenook Inns and Taverns chain and managing director James Waddington said: “The Grapes at Goosnargh is a well-loved pub at the heart of the village community. We’re so pleased with the transformation and that we have retained its traditional and local feel.
“The refurbishment has been a fantastic opportunity to give the interior and exterior a refresh and we are particularly delighted with the pub’s stunning beer terrace which will be the ideal spot for alfresco drinking and dining this Summer.
“We are really looking forward to the opening night and a chance to show off this lovely pub at its very best.”
